The “Valdejalón’s Cluster”, is named after a region of Aragon (Spain), located in the west-central area of the province of Zaragoza. The cluster denomination stems from the 6 wind farms concentrated in the area. The region will be a reference in Spain as a source of clean energy: El Sotillo (Lumpiaque, 15.00 MW, Energías Eólico y Ecológicas 53, SL) , Bohalar I (La Muela and Zaragoza, 9.00 MW, Bohalar I Wind Farm), Alto de La Muela (La Muela and María de Huerva, 4.85 MW, Auxiliary and Telecommunication Service), La Gabarda R & D ( Épila, 5.00 MW, Épila Renovables), El Llano (Rueda de Jalón, 10.00 MW, Molinos del Ebro) and Tablares (Lumpiaque, 12.00 MW, Sociedad Eólica Ribera Baja).
Aragón, with permits for 79 wind farms and 56 photovoltaic plants, leads the renewable energy sector in Spain.79 wind farms with a total capacity of 2,355.49 Megawatts (MW). Six (6) farms with a capacity of 122.45 MW already built and with operating authorization.143 wind farms in permitting process with a power of 4,160.70 MW, including the 79 already authorized.58 projects, originated in the auctions convened by the previous Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda, current Ministry of Ecological Transition.
The Aragon Autonomous Community was, with notable difference, the region that attracted the most projects by power capacity.
Forestalia is a business group dedicated to renewable energies (wind, photovoltaic and biomass).
